If you’re a Graphic Designer, there’s a huge pressure to create something truly breathtaking for your own wedding invitations…and Sophie was no exception.

Sophie is a Graphic Designer born in Canada who has temporarily chosen to be a F.I.F.O. worker on the mines in the far north of Western Australia so she can finance her dream of having her own graphic design studio. She illustrated the design for her wedding stationery using water colours, then scanned it and created the wording.

Sophie was looking for a printer who would do her wedding invitation artwork justice and who could print on a textured paper.

We printed with our Xerox digital press in french and english with personalised addressee names on the Versa Felt 118gsm envelopes. The invitation was printed on two separate sheets and sandwiched together to create a luxuriously thick 432gsm card stock with delicious texture, which complemented Sophie’s water-colour design.

The envelope liner was printed on 118gsm Versa Felt and hand-glued into our 150×150 iflap Versa Felt envelope. We printed Sophie & Dayman’s reply address on our 120x120mm Versa Felt matching envelope for the RSVP card.

The Reply and Gift Cards were both printed on Versa Felt Bright White 216gsm in full colour on both sides.

Before going for the final print, the couple decided they’d like to see a printed proof before making the final decision to go with the duplexing of the invitation. Sophie knows you see things in print you just don’t see in a digital print…

Even so, we managed to pick up a simple spelling error fiends instead of friends after we’d been given the approval to print, which they were extremely grateful for.

The ensemble of matching cards and envelopes were simply parceled together with jute twine then inserted into the envelopes before posting.

I think you’ll agree, Sophie excelled.

Here’s what Sophie had to say  :-)
